1896

In 1896, a team of oxen would  skid a load of logs on the east side of Lake Sammamish. After unhooking the team from log, the men would use peavies to roll the log down the skids and into the lake for rafting to the mill. For more historic images of logging in Issaquah, visit our Digital Archives.
